12p: 3T Castor Oil (no diarrhea or abdominal cramps)
Basil and Oregano tea

Braxton hicks all day.

5p: Hubby made basil stuffed chicken
6p: Massage
630p-1030: Very painful contractions (and horrendous back pain), progressed to every 3 minutes, got the shakes, lost plug...then slowed to every 8-10m.

Trying to stay hydrated. Called midwife..said it sounds like I'm on my way..but could use some more time at home. Can't sleep between contractions, they are worse when I lay down.

8 days past edd! Yeah!!!! I was starting to worry!:::
